"My family arranged a cooking lesson with Umberto so he taught me how to cook a 3 course meal for my wife on our anniversary. Umberto was phenomenal. A truly fantastic experience and exceptional food was made :) he's an amazing chef a great teacher and all round top guy. Would thoroughly recommend him to anyone. Thank you so much for this brilliant experience :)"

"Umberto arrived on time and set about creating the meal in a very professional manner while cheerfully answering questions from interested guests. All of the courses were exceptional from the chefs assortment of canapes to the delicious sweat. The whole experience exceeded my expectations due to chef Umberto's cheerful disposition and undoubted professional ability, making my wife's birthday a day to remember."

"Umberto was a replacement chef as the original chef turned out to be double-booked. Umberto was helpful and completely flexible when it came to my proposed amendments to the menu, and the food on the night was absolutely superb. He was efficient, pleasant and interesting and I cannot praise him too highly."

"The meal by Umberto was simply wonderful! We LOVED every bite! Umberto was the perfect chef - very well organized, served everything with the agreed timing - and graciously worked with what we had available to us there (sorry about the freezer - we actually found it in the Garden Room the next day!!)
The flavours in every dish were delightful - and everything looked beautiful too. It really was a fitting meal for George's 90th birthday. We wanted to make the event special. He does not like too much "fuss", but he appreciates excellent food. We really hit the perfect balance! Eating our meal out in the church part of The Priory at the dining table there was really special. I am glad that I chatted about the eating location with Umberto and followed his advice not to eat at the kitchen table.
It was a real treat to walk into the kitchen and see it perfectly cleaned up. Normally, I would not get to enjoy the meal so much, because I would be running around in the kitchen and then also doing the clean-up. I really appreciated being able to fully participate in the celebration meal (and my cooking is nowhere near as good as Umberto's!)
Our sincere thanks and appreciation to Umberto for the fabulous experience."
